I would, at minimum, have the guides checked, they often will get egg shaped when a valve is bent.

Put 'em in a vise and straighten them out with a hammer.

Chev 350.......F-Bird is answering you in the manner you asked...of course get them checked by a competant machine shop. Aren't you a bit curious as to WHY the valves got bent??

Thats not a good thing sooooo something is wrong. Did the valves hit the tops of your pistons? too much gross valve lift? valve spring coil bind? too long of push rods?
